Cannonball Read IV

A bunch of Pajibans reading and reviewing and honoring AlabamaPink.

CommanderStrikeher’s #CBR4 Review #39 The Tales of Beedle the Bard by J.K. Rowling

 

I didn’t know that this book existed until I saw a few reviews of it on the Cannonball Read blog.  Thanks again Cannonball!  This is the book Dumbledore leaves Hermione in the beginning of the book, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.  It is a collection of fairy tales, similar to the Brothers Grimm or Hans Christian Anderson, except they were written for Wizard children.  There are 5 stories, and each one has an afterword written by Albus Dumbledore.  Each of the stories is designed to teach a lesson, so maybe these are more like Aesop’s Fables than the Brothers Grimm.

This was a cute collection.  J.K. Rowling did the interior illustrations herself, and this book was used to raise money for the charity she co-founded, The Children’s High Level Group.  This is a great addition to the Harry Potter universe.

4/5 Stars
